£82000 - £125000

We are currently supporting a long standing client to continue the expansion of their asset finance group.  We have successful hired the majority of their associate team in the past and are able to provide detailed advice to help you decide if this firm is right for you.

The work is both shipping and aviation focussed and the deals they manage are undoubtedly market leading.  They are an ambitious, hard working group that value technical excellence.  Their commitment to building the practice has made them a very profitable part of the overall business.

They are currently looking to hire two junior lawyers.  Having discussed the role in detail with the partners, we asked them what they perceive to be some of the key advantages of joining the team;

  • Firstly, the work.  It is broad in nature across shipping, aviation and oil & gas transactions.  Their client base is varied, including banks, funds, lessors, shipowners, airlines and private equity investors.  Providing junior associates with an interesting portfolio of work.
  • Secondly, technical training and development.  From junior associate level, lawyers are encouraged to draft their own deal terms and to learn the technical nuances of complex deals.  Teaching junior lawyers to develop technically is important to the partners, meaning junior lawyers are able to learn and develop a skillset that will support their long term development as a lawyer. 
  • Thirdly, remuneration.  This firm has separated its self from the pack in terms of overall financial package.  Whilst their salaries do not quite stretch to magic circle level, their base salaries are extremely competitive for their billable hours target and their bonus payments have been sizeable. 

If this role could be of interest, we would be happy to discuss the specifics of the opportunity in more detail, alongside providing an insight into the culture of the team and the wider firm.
